Tuskegee Airmen focus of Lucas’ next film

The Tuskegee Airmen will be the focus of George Lucas’ next film. Lucas has talked about such a movie since 2005, but he’s now hired a screenwriter and told USA TODAY that he hopes to shoot it later this year. The name of the film will be “Red Tails.” It’s a nod to the candy apple color pilots painted the tails of their fighter planes. The Tuskegee Airmen were the nation’s premier black combat aviators who flew largely in North Africa and Italy during World War II.
